    Fake.

    All you have to remember is the so called "coffin" shaped tab which holds the pin in place. Used on a whole range of fakes.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is ``sand cast`` replica, i.e. Fake. To make shampleve enamel one needs espensive cast steel stamping tool to produce depressions where enamel powder is applied and then fired at very high temperature to melt into enamel (glass, in fact). Sand cast is cheap but leaves rough surface as seen in this badge. More dangerous are fakes made in hungary and poland. Once the enamel is fired the only ``coffin tab`` is applied with low temperature soldering with tin. So called ``hard soldering`` is impossible because the enamel would crack.
